It’s Been Weeks

IT’S BEEN WEEKS….Roger Federer won a clay court title today in an upset victory over clay demigod Rafael Nadal. I love this line from the BBC’s report:

Federer’s victory also ended his own run of four tournaments without a title, his worst spell since he became world number one in February 2004.

Four tournaments without a title! Someone call the slumpmobile!
